2017 Vermentino, Fox Family Vineyard

2017 Vermentino, Fox Family Vineyard

This is the tenth vintage of Vermentino from the Fox Family Vineyard!  Vermentino is thought to have originated in Spain and has made amazing, crisp food-friendly wines in Italy and Southern France where it is named Rolle.  I like to enjoy this wine with oysters on a warm spring day, by the pool or with shellfish.  These grapes come from a tiny, high density block on a rocky slope of the Fox Family Vineyard.  The grapes were hand harvested (by me, my mom and dad, my brothers and a few of my dad’s friends), sorted and whole-cluster pressed to preserve the fresh, crisp and fruity quality of this amazing varietal.  The juice was then fermented in all older French oak barrels while preventing malo-lactic fermentation with sulphur dioxide and aged for 4 months in stainless steel.  This wine was bottled in late February of 2018.
